Title: Uploading Static Character (Player Character) Questions
Post by: Merrie on Nov 10, 17, 02:10:42 PM
To upload a static player character ...

This is a Fuse character (to get me started)

It's not clear on the wiki if I need to upload a character into the library I would assume so like a NPC?

I set up a character and uploaded it all fine no errors.  Now, I'm, a bit lost of how / where to set up the characters animations as there are four articles on the wiki, so I'm not sure how/where to start.

So looking at the bottom half of this page http://wiki.heroengine.com/wiki/Animating_Characters_Tutorial (http://wiki.heroengine.com/wiki/Animating_Characters_Tutorial) I assume that is what I would do next.

Thank you for your assistance.

Thank you for the try Amarak, I do read the wiki, so my above questions are not answered by the wiki.  So if someone could re-read my question and assist thank you.

I use Max, not Maya, so I can't walk you through the exporting process, but you do not have to add a Static Character to the Library. You can add it to the Character Manager using a command similar to:
/henpc add spec mycharacter \character\mycharacter\ in the Console window

To access the Character Manager use F5, go to the second tab, and Character Manager.

I got it imported just fine, just needed to know about the Character Manager.   Thank you Amarak!

Well, this is probably user error.  I used the chat command to bring in the character and it looks like a little multi-colored spinning top running around the region. 

This will be a lot easier to explain if I could ask someone to set up a time with me for a quick screen share on Discord.  Without a lot of pictures, it will be quite a challenge to explain here.  I'm EST USA.

Please feel free to email if anyone is willing to help.  merries59@gmail.com
